Chapter 25. FileMaker Server > Working with External Services

Working with External Services

FileMaker Server can take advantage of certain external services to help centralize the management of information such as server location and user authentication credentials. If you or your organization maintain such services, you can configure FileMaker Server to use them. You can use external services to centralize two types of information:

  • Information about the location of machines running FileMaker Server. You can use one or more directory servers to maintain information about the names and locations of FileMaker Servers throughout your organization, rather than having your users keep track of server names or addresses.

  • Information about user credentials. You can use the authentication services built into Windows and the Mac OS to map users' network credentials directly onto FileMaker accounts and privileges.
